I know 2 posts in one day is something I haven’t done for years… But I saw something reminded me of sometime from the past… and of people i have met and heard of lately… so I had to write!!!!
So it was… A stranger on your steps. Looking exactly like a person you never wanted to inter your house. But you welcome them as you have been taught the ways to do so. You great them with respect you were brought up with. You offer them something to drink. You serve them some of your humble bread. You never ask them to stop expressing who they are and you study them without them noticing.
You like what you hear, you stop looking at their clothing at their hair and at their shoes… You look deep in their eyes and souls. You start smiling at them. You laugh at their jokes and agree with their statements.
Suddenly you realize you missed judged them simply for being different. You understand people can different from you are but still great to have around.
This reminds me of my one time work day with Circus Mundus Absurdusin Finland. It was in Imatra. Very scary people I thought… Horrible looking… Trouble act… And I was not comfortable at all around them. After the show they sat with me… Make up was removed off their faces… The blood was wiped of their skin… And funny thing was contact lenses were taken off to put on cute eyeglasses. Conversations started. Suddenly I realized I was talking to an amazing high degree university holder. We went to a club after where we were all invited as guests of honor and music started and it moved this man like I have never seen a white man move before to find out he was before his career a professional ballet dancer. Ballet, philosophy, kindness and sweetness were no what expected from men looking like they did. Well I was wrong! I realized I had the human’s bad habit to judge by look and say the book can be judged by it’s cover… I realized I was wrong doing so.
Today when someone comes by looking like … well I rather not use labels… I will simply say who am I to judge? And what if this person is much higher, more beautiful, smarter or simply much more good inside out than I would ever be? Who am I to call names people simply because they look different or come from different background.
Watch this video for inspiration… and think of all the people who judged her because she looked different!
I’m going once again on diet for 10 days… I hope! 😛
I had a lunch… Actually 2 lunches with Ali’s parents in the last week.
What I said about themin couple of posts earlier was assured for me even more. I also got to meet Ali’s eldest brother who was he also a very respectful nice person but very quiet. I think it to do because he did not expect a stranger (ME) to be present in his parents’ house. His kids were lovely and well I was glad to see also very familiar faces around as well. And I got to watch ½ of Spanish Qualifying with very interesting people who seemed all were into the F1 which made me very happy! 😀
The food though… The food is just too good to be true! I am glad I do not live in that house or I will make Ali’s head explode from complains of being FAT… I mean I do complain and give him constant headache now being the way I am… But I have to say again the FOOOOOODDDD… That food is good! As Ali’s mum said you got to dive in the fish today (All different fish dishes)!
Lucky me I got to eat again couple of days ago… This time it was Persian style stew with lamb and small home-made kebab on the side with white rice…… AHHHH…
Ok. So I looked at my body yesterday when was enjoying my one-day spa (once a week Routine)… And I have gained weight! So now back on diet for 10 days… But how when there is so good food I’m invited to??? 😦
